government abandon its fans to leave the european union altogether the prime minister is coming under pressure from all sides as parliament protest a vote this week on her deal to leave the e.u. with many expecting to make as to reject the time. showing their colors before the decisive parliamentary vote these people are protesting against the braggs a deal struck by prime minister theresa may they want to stay in the. the country is divided many now think bragg's it is a mistake wales has flipped a majority here voted to leave the e.u. two years ago latest polls suggest that's changed. i did but. that's i still just press to make our own decisions. that's now i'm not sure i think we've got a bad deal staying in the woods walks up and i would begin to come i mean i think it's a lot of regret because i think a lot of people thought leaves me just walk up but i knew it wouldn't be quite like
10:03 pm
this is so complicated you know. you know with populations millions and this is just it's not as easy as shutting the door and saying goodbye theresa may is under attack from those who want to stay in the e.u. and those who want to leave but think her deal is not good enough she insists what she agreed with the e.u. and presented to parliament last week is the best possible option she and her loyalists rejected suggestions that they would delay the vote it is going ahead and that's because it is a good deal it's the only deal and it's important that we don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good and what of parliament rejects the deal an unregulated exit new elections or even a second referendum the only sure thing seems to be that nearly everyone will be unhappy. home all i want to bring in toby helm now he's in london he's the political editor of the british newspaper the observer welcome toby tell us more now about who marched today in the british capital. well it's both sides
10:04 pm
both extremes if you like of the breakfast argument which as your report said comes ahead on tuesday so today you had. the rightwing you can get organized march was one march you can has the u.k. independence party which will always come pain. to get out of the european union and they believe that the way that tories amazed trying to take the u.k. out of the european union isn't really breakfasted tool it's some sort of fudge which will keep us half a and so that was one march infiltrated to some extent by far right forces slightly ugly forces from the far right then you had on the other side. countermarch against that and against the far right. who were arguing that there should be a second referendum and that bracks is sure that you will again said be effectively
10:05 pm
abandoned it was all a bad idea so just as the parliament just as the m.p.'s in parliament up the road divided really. within westminster the people are divided on the streets as well and these marches illustrated that divide it in westminster which poses the question well threesome i get a break to deal through parliament on tuesday and if she doesn't try to be one of the possible. it's almost certain that she won't is it is even a question as to whether she will go ahead with it on tuesday or somehow pull out of it the problem with pulling out of it is you have to confront the issue at some time and time is running out for you to confront it so i would guess she would probably go ahead with the show fails and she'll lose the vote by a huge margin which in any normal circumstance would be the end of the prime minister on issues biggest if but she. because the entire country because every
10:06 pm
party not just parliament as a whole every party within itself is utterly split on brecht said there was a big question as to who would be better than. to to sort it out and the answer is nobody knows who would be better than her so i think despite the fact she might she will probably lose it i think she'll probably stay on as prime minister the question is then what from what we do about brecht well there are loads of possibilities she could either go to try to go back to brussels to negotiate some better deal very unlikely because they won't have it all possibly call a second referendum or possibly with no deal. i'm in range of options i think it's a wide range of options but i mean how should europe understand what's happening in the u.k. and is that is there any chance that britain could stay in the e.u. in the next. the route to the u.k.
10:07 pm
staying in the news is through the holding of a second referendum. that is possible but it's very very difficult to achieve because. it has to be a referendum has to be approved by parliament and parliament credibly divided and there is no guarantee a tool that there would be a majority for a second referendum. in parliament so to resume a might all party leaders might say they want one but it might be rejected by parliament as a whole that's quite difficult to see how it's it is achieved. just a long way to get used to being the next crucial date when parliament will vote on teresa mayes brag deal to the helmets kratos editor of the british newspaper the observer thank you very much thank. in armenia state media is reporting the acting prime minister nicola passion younes alliance is leading in
10:08 pm
a snap parliamentary election but vote counting is still underway now passion and hard pushed for the snow but i tossed a peaceful anti corruption uprising took him to power earlier this year and marked the most sweeping political shift in on me in decades fashion and is currently seeking a stronger mandate from botha's his reform agenda. for more i'm joined now by journalist joshua kuchera he is in the capital yerevan hi there joshua we have the first preliminary results coming in what are you hearing that. well it looks like from the their preliminary results which are quite early at this point they're more or less tracking what we expected what opinion polls were saying and that's that you go cautiously arms my stuff alliance is winning a pretty commanding victory i don't think we'll know complete results for a while now but everyone expected and these results are showing that he's going to have the overwhelming majority in parliament and what about voter turnout how's
10:09 pm
that looking. that's been interesting we do have more concrete numbers on that the central election commission announced the turnout was forty nine percent which compared to the last parliamentary elections which was last year that was sixty one percent so it sounds quite a bit and is that a lot of speculation about why that might be part of it is certainly that that the old regime used a variety of of unsavory methods to get people to the polls they would organize government workers to go all to go together or or in many cases just bribing them and that's not happening this time around so that certainly accounts for some of that some pro pasha on analysts were suggesting but there also might be some complacency among the electorate because the polls showed him with such a huge victory that a lot of people thought maybe they just stay home or as these votes come in then
10:10 pm
let's take a brief look ahead what are the real challenges that passion young faces if he does indeed gain at that part of the tree majority. well the u.s. is going to have a lot of challenges i mean that he's made very big promises. and especially in terms of the economy are being as economy has been stagnant for a very long time and he has raised expectations quite high and talked a lot about. new jobs and higher salaries and doing that by bringing foreign investment so far in the seven months that he's been prime minister the the economy hasn't really changed in there hasn't been any significant new foreign investment and he's always been able to say well this is because i don't have control of the parliament and they're blocking my incidents asking is this what you should have full control of everything and that's going to make him not have any more excuses the journalists to joshua cherry in the media capital yerevan thank

unacceptable it's been several weekends in a row now look around you everything's broken it damaged all the shops had to close and spend money to shut everything up and it happens every week most countries man many people blame a car for not talking to the protesters. i think it's very hard but it's a reaction of the people there with the french people. waiting for. the president's call has remained silent so far he showed his face after the worst riots one week ago but refused to dialogue with the yellow vest protesters. now after a fourth consecutive weekend of violence it looks like my kong can't avoid confrontation any longer to find ways to mollify protesters his office announced a public consultation and a meeting with representatives of trade unions on monday citizens all over france
